A SUM of $80,000 was presented to the Rudy Choy Fund to be used for training Hong Kong students in the travel industry. The money is from a charity donation of $160,000 made by the SKAL Club of Hong Kong, the local chapter of the worldwide travel industry association. The money was raised at the last annual Christmas fund-raiser and was presented to the various charities by Hong Kong SKAL Club president James Smith. Of the total raised, $80,000 was donated to the Rudy Choy Fund, which was set up by the club in 1992 and named after prominent travel industry personality Rudy Choy, to provide training in the industry for Hong Kong students. The cheque was accepted on behalf of the fund, by the late Mr Choy's son, Anthony. A sum of $40,000 was presented to Mrs Eleanor Morris, vice-chairman of the Children's Cancer Foundation, and another $40,000 was presented to Mr Gerry Forsgate, chairman of the China Coast Community and Andrew Cleeton, its honorary secretary. The Rudy Choy Fund has already provided five training scholarships to students of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong Technical College in Chai Wan, and two students at the Travel Industry Management School of the University of Hawaii. New awards will be made later this year.
